The tree..

… in the new banner for the site is called maṯpuna or maṯpana in Yan-nhaŋu. It’s introduced, it’s great for sitting under (green ants like it too), and it has the same name as a type of fish (not surprising in itself, since there’s a lot of flora/fauna homonymy, but surprising in this case because everyone treats it as introduced). I don’t know anything more about it and have had trouble finding the scientific name, so if anyone recognises it… (and no, it’s not in Zorc).
